Enjoy Fish and Chip Day!
National Fish & Chips Day arrives tomorrow
A great excuse to tuck into the classic British dish.
Delicious and very satisfying is the best way to describe this Fish Friday treat. There’s something about the tang of salt and vinegar that speaks of a meal steeped in tradition. Fish and Chipday commemorates this fundamental meal of the working class, and while its roots may lie on Britain’s foggy shores, there are few places in the world that this comfort food hasn’t found its way to, including China Fleet in Cornwall!
Fish and Chips seem an odd thing to have become the foundation for an entire working class, but in the late 1800’s, trawl fishing became a major part of the industry in the North Sea, resulting in a growing availability of fresh fish in areas further inland, especially within the cities. Anyone who understands economics knows that ‘easily available’ means ‘cheaper to get your hands on’.
Cheap, filling, and high caloric food created an excellent foundation for a working class that held incredibly physically demanding jobs.
So why not celebrate Fish and Chip Day with us, indulge yourself with a delicious and filling meal with our Fish Friday offer, £15.95 for two! Try it however you like it, with a little tartar sauce, a bit of mayonnaise, or tomato sauce. With lashings of malt vinegar, a very popular addition, give your fish and chips a delicious tang, it will make your Fish and Chip Friday flavourful and traditional!
